All proceeds will go to The Hope Centre. ●● AS part of Tytherington School’s 50th anniversary it is launching an online community for former pupils called Tytherington School Network.
The network, which will go live at the end of April, has been developed using closed groups on LinkedIn and Facebook to provide support for both former and current pupils.
The network is focused on supporting career development by helping former students of Tytherington School stay connected.
Additionally, the network will also support current pupils by connecting them with former students to act as role models, mentors, or provide work placements.
The school is already busy signing up previous students from the last 50 years.
Steve Jowett, the school’s head, said: “These former pupils work in a fascinating array of jobs.”
If you are a year 11, 12 or 13 student or a former pupil of Tytherington School and would like to join, go to the network page at www.tytherington school.co.uk under the Sixth Form header or via the link on the parent, student or visitor pages.
To celebrate 50 years of Tytherington there will be events and projects throughout the year.
Plans are currently underway for a school fair, involving the whole school community, to take place on Saturday, June 27.
Students from the history department are working to produce a timeline of events from 1965 to the present day.
It has also been suggested that some students might like to create a vision of the ‘Tytherington School of the Future’.
If you would like to find out more about the events and what is taking place at Tytherington School, or how to get involved, the point of contact is Sue Melville.
